I’ve just opened an Etsy store. I am not a skilled artist…but glass is my craft, a lot of people say they like the stuff I make, and it piles up and I can’t use it all, after all. So I am trying to sell enough of it to fund my hobby. That said, I try to set prices respectful of people who want to make a business of selling their glass…but at the low end, because I want sales, and because I’m still a beginner.

In general, I take cost of materials, plus I pay myself 9.00/hr of labor involved, and a couple of bucks overhead—more for more kiln cycles—and figure around 2.5 times that number. Then I look on Etsy to see if other people are pricing similarly, and adjust if it looks like I’m overpriced. It usually doesn’t.
